We went to find information about our family history, fond out so much more than we thought we would.
Thanks to the team of volunteers.

Recently visited the museum...full of fascinating history from the area,staffed by friendly knowledgable people. The houses on site are delightful examples of dwellings from different eras. Catch the piece of parchment under glass from the 1500's and the perfectly preserved wedding cake from 1929. You can easily spend a few hours looking for treasures here. Minimal entry fee.... Well worth a visit!

We have just returned from another visit to Stanthorpe in the South East of Queensland, Friday the 15th we visited the local museum where we were greeted by a very friendly elderly lady. We paid the entry fee of $5 per adult (very cheap for the amount of information they give you and items they have on display. It is all very organised and very well displayed they accompanying information is great and we have once more learned a lot during our visit. Our two older teens (18 & 19 years) enjoyed it very much as well (their words) our daughter started talking to one of the volunteers (a 90 year young woman), she explained so much of the local history which was absolutely great. We walked through all the buildings and each and everyone of them had a story to tell so interesting.
When in Stanthorpe or close by set a few hours aside and visit this museum (with all their very friendly volunteers) it is well worth it and the entry fee won't break the bank; $5/adult $2.50/child and $15/family parents + 4 school children and don't forget your ticket is valid for 5 days so if you want to come back another day it won't cost you anything.

Wonderful looking through all the old things and just be reminded of the past, which we all tend to forget in our busy lives

Lots of interesting displays, helpful and knowledgeable staff and volunteers. Village-type setting utilises a variety of buildings with historical value. Worth visiting more than once as there is so much to see and displays are added to and changed from time to time.
